An HR system is the best solution for calculating the annual leave allowances

The HRLocker Holiday Calculator determines agreed or statutory holiday pay and annual leave entitlement allowance for full-time staff, or pro rata for part-time workers. It also includes Bank Holiday payments. This tool covers most circumstances in the UK and the Republic of Ireland but does not cover every individual case.

If you want to work out holidays for part-time staff this tool can cover the basics, but an HR system is always the best solution for calculating the annual leave allowances for any kind of worker or a mix of various kinds of Paid Time off Requirements. Especially to calculate holiday entitlement for new employees.

If in doubt, we advise that you consult a legal or HR professional who can advise of your exact obligations as an employer, or specific entitlements that apply to you as an employee.

Please note this is a holiday entitlement calculator NOT a holiday pay calculator.

Annual Leave Entitlements

By law, all employees are entitled to annual leave including full-time, part-time, temporary, and casual staff. Most full-time employees are entitled to 4 weeks of annual leave each year. This is known as your statutory entitlement.

Some organisations might offer more annual leave as an incentive. It is important that you always check your annual leave entitlement in your Contract of Employment or Employee Handbook.
